What's your badge look like?

(Couldnt find a topic on this)
I'm a county deputy and have a gold 7 point star with a silver ring around the outside. At 3" in diameter it kind of feels like a hubcap, but I think it looks good.

Is there any history behind your agency's choice?

In Ohio, the Buckeye State Sheriff's Association (BSSA) determines the uniform regulations for Sheriffs, and Deputies. We use a gold five point star, with the county name, and unit number.

No history that I'm aware of. I'm in Missouri, and it seems most every sheriff's office has a different style badge.

Chinese throwing star!

7pt silver. Looks good, but I really dig the traditional 5pt with 'balls' at the points.

Our badges are made by C. W. Nielsen, model C-11 as I recall. Sgts and up get gold badges, including detectives. This seems to be a pretty common shape around the state.

Check out my avatar for the last badge I carried. Before that I wore the following NYPD shields; patrolmen, detective, sergeant and lieutenant.

Proud of them all.
